Installing NetPBM RPM via SSH


I am trying to install NetPBM on a Linux web server running 7.3. I am connected via SSH. The questions I cannot resolve:

Do I need to transfer the netpbm-9.14-2.i386.rpm file to a specific folder when I run the install command?

Is this the correct command to install this RPM:
rpm -ivh netpbm-9.14-2.i386.rpm

Once I run this, will I need to modify the httpd.conf file?

Thanks much in advance for the help.

You do not need to move the rpm file to a specific directory in order to install it. Rpms will install from any directory.

Yes that is the correct syntax for installing an rpm.

What is the netpbm package? What does it have to do with httpd.conf?

I noticed some If statements in the httpd.conf file that referred to modules. That is why I asked.

Thanks for the assistance.

Another followup on installing an RPM via SSH

Another followup on installing an RPM via SSH:

I am in SSH and I have run FTP.

I am trying to download this file:

ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/7....14-2.i386.rpm

I can't figure out how to do this. Do I need to start an xWindow or something?
